Bischoff: “I’m just not that big of a fan of wrestling matches”

Oct 5, 2022 - by James Walsh

During his 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW executive Eric Bischoff gave his thoughts on wrestling matches…

“I’m going to get burned. I’m going to get crucified for what I’m about to say. But guess what? I don’t care. I’m just not that big of a fan of wrestling matches. I’m a big fan of the story and the way the show is architect-ed. Built. Formatted. Created. I’m a big fan of new ideas. Sometimes they work sometimes they don’t.”

Bischoff was also asked if he watched WWE programming during the Monday Night War…

“No [I didn’t watch WWE content.] I was aware. If I heard of something that was coming up that was significant, that people were excited about or interested in and I got word of that, I’d check it out. But I didn’t study it. I didn’t keep track of it. I didn’t really think about it all that much. To the extent that there were things about the WWF that were really noticeable I watched WWF at that time, and when I would drop in, more often than not, I was dropping in to see how they produced their show. I wasn’t tuning in to watch a wrestling match.”
